Two years ago our family of 13 met on Sifnos and stayed at this property. We ranged in age from 2 to 67(read my review from July 2014). It was an amazing stay. This year we returned with another couple who had never been to Greece. We spent a week on a catamaran and were dropped off on Sifnos. We... More

The design, vibe, location, rooms, and service of this hotel, run by a wonderful family, were perfect for us! We loved our time here. Very relaxed, welcoming, comfortable, and clean. Great service and breakfasts, an excellent location, beautiful grounds and views, and spectacular swimming. We just spent 4 days/nights here in mid-Sept., and we'll definitely return.

The hotel is a refurbishment of a 1960's Xenia Hotel and it is a landmark for the area. The service is really good sometimes more than ones a day changing towels. The vegetation is beautifull with hybisks and palm trees. Nice seating areas under the pergolas are offering beautifull view of the sea. Nice garden to relax and read your... More

We really liked this hotel. However, I don't think they're at a 5-star/excellent rating for a couple reasons. First, the good things about this hotel: -excellent location right on the beach -fabulous terrace -free parking -pet friendly (we could hook our dog's leash around the door to the terrace and he could freely roam on the terrace and in the...

We were in Platis Yialos for a wedding and booked at this hotel. Staff is really friendly, very helpful. We had the suite, which has a very nice private terrace (with sunbeds and parasol). I usually wake up very early, when being out of home, here I never woke up before 10:30-11:00 AM. Breakfast is just what you need. Also,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Platys Gialos was built from the Greek government as a Xenia from one of the most known Greek architects Mr.Aris Konstantinidis. In 1971 our family bought this hotel renovated many times and still operating it until today without destroying it's character and spirit. Xenia was built by the Greek government in the early 60s in order to attract and develop tourism in Greece. The most ideal spots were chosen and this is basically our main advantage.We are offering relaxing holidays by the beach just meters away seas crystal water. ... more   less
